Undisputed Women’s Tag-Team Title Eliminator
Ivy Nile & Maxxine Dupri vs. Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell vs. Tegan Nox & Natalya vs. Katana Chance & Kayden Carter

We shoot to the backstage area when Adam Pearce deals with a bunch of nagging women’s tag-team contenders complaining about wanting a shot at the Undisputed WWE Women’s Tag-Team Championships.

The teams include Ivy Nile & Maxxine Dupri vs. Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell vs. Tegan Nox & Natalya vs. Katana Chance & Kayden Carter. That match is up next. We head to a commercial break on that note.

When we return from the break, we see Zoey Stark and Shayna Baszler looking comfortable in The Judgment Day clubhouse as Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio were walking in. Stark and Baszler taunt Ripley. Baszler walks off.

Stark tells Ripley she’s focused on everything but the one thing she should be focused on — her, and their title match at Survivor Series. Stark tells Ripley to talk a long hard look at her title because after this Saturday, it’s coming home with her.

Ripley tells her most people wouldn’t survive a move like the one she just pulled, so she respects that, but warns her that she’ll get her beating at Survivor Series. Michael Cole promotes the PLE for this Saturday and then we shift gears and the duo of Chelsea Green and Piper Niven join them on commentary.

The Undisputed WWE Women’s Tag-Team Champions join the gang on the call for our next match of the evening, which is already in the ring without any entrances for the competitors. Nox and Nile kick things off in the ring.

We head to a mid-match commercial break after Hartwell hits a big dive onto a pile of bodies on the floor. When we return, we see Nile hit a wild spot suplexing two women off the top-rope by herself. Carter and Chance hit a cool double-team spot for a big pop as well. In the end, Nox gets the pin.

Winners and NEW No. 1 Contenders To Undisputed Women’s Tag Titles: Tegan Nox & Natalya

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Chad Gable

Back inside the Van Andel Arena the rock violins begin playing as “The King of Strong Style” emerges. Japanese legend Shinsuke Nakamura makes his way down to the ring for our next match of the evening against Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable.

As he settles inside the squared circle, we shift gears and head into a pre-match commercial break. When we return, we see a WrestleMania Week tickets live ad read and then we shoot to a special word from Ivar and Valhalla. They talk about how in one weeks time the earth will shake because Ivar challenges Bronson Reed.

We then return inside the arena where Nakamura is wrapping up his ring entrance. “SHOOSH!” is what we hear next as Alpha Academy makes their way out, as Otis, Akira Tozawa and Maxxine Dupri accompany “Coach” Chad Gable to the ring for this one-on-one contest against Nakamura.

The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with this one. The commentators mention Gable’s Heritage Cup shot against Noam Dar on tomorrow night’s episode of NXT on USA. We see some back-and-forth action and then Gable takes over and lets out a “THANK YOU!” as we head into a mid-match commercial break.

When we return, we see Gable still dominating the majority of the offense until he runs into a well-placed and well-timed elbow by “The King of Strong Style.” Nakamura follows up with a sliding German suplex for some heat from the crowd. He lands a flying knee off the middle rope for a close near fall attempt.

Gable fights back into the offensive driver’s seat and then heads to the top-rope. He leaps off and connects with a picture-perfect flying headbutt for a super close near fall attempt. Nakamura takes the padding off the turnbuckle. He then blasts Gable with a roundhouse kick that decks him.

He sets him up for the Kinshasa but Gable avoids it. Gable counters and hits the Chaos Theory for a close near fall attempt. Nakamura starts to fight back but Gable launches him overhead with a full nelson suplex. He then pulls the straps down like Kurt Angle in his prime and heads back to the top-rope.

He goes for a moonsault but Nakamura gets the boots up. Nakamura follows up by launching Gable overhead. He goes for the Kinshasa again but Gable picks the ankle and locks in an ankle lock. Nakamura fights it and eventually escapes. He tries sending Gable into the turnbuckle without the padding. Gable stops himself but Nakamura rolls him up for the win.

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
